Thanks to our friends at Sea World San Antonio, we were able to spend two nights at this amazing hotel while visiting Sea World for their Sesame Street Party Parade debut. They didn’t ask us to write about the best hotel near Sea World San Antonio, but we couldn’t resist! We had such a great time during our stay at the Hilton Hill Country in San Antonio, Texas.
Best Hotel Near Sea World San Antonio
The property is beautiful. At the front entrance, you are greeted with a little Sea World love immediately. Alongside a pretty water fountain are these Shamu fins coming out of the greenery.
Although the front entrance is nice, the real beauty can be found in the back. This oasis for families to enjoy their getaway is exactly what we needed. There were plenty of lounge chairs and tables to relax in. Some of the chairs even rocked, making it extra comfy!
We love playing cornhole as a family. We were pleasantly surprised to see they had several outdoor games set up for free play. There was a life-size chess game going on as well.
Even though it is very hot in Texas during the summer months, we had to make s’mores in the fire pits. The staff comes out right before nightfall and lights all the fires.
It comes in handy when drying off after swimming, you can get warm by the fire. You are welcome to bring your own s’mores making kit or buy a pack from the front desk for $5. The pack they give you comes with Hershey’s chocolate bar and enough graham crackers and extra large marshmallows to make four full square s’mores. They also provide marshmallow roasting sticks for free.
The fun did not end there! While making s’mores we got to watch the outdoor movie. They projected Finding Dory on the side of the building for everyone to see.
Kids and adults gathered around to watch the movie. You could hear and see it from just about all angles. There was plenty of room in the chairs and alongside the fire pits, however, kids could also use their swim towels to sit on up towards the front.
There are two pools. One offers volleyball fun with a net across the middle of the pool. You can also play basketball nearby!
Night swimming was the best. The pool glowed, just when you thought it wouldn’t get any more beautiful. We were fascinated by watching all the changing colors. From a beautiful deep purple to a glowing green, I loved every shade.
Hilton Hill Country San Antonio
After all the family-friendly luxury outside, the inside of the Hilton Hill Country continued to impress. The hotel rooms were spacious and modern.
I love having a desk to put my laptop when traveling. I think all hotel rooms should offer at least a small desk or table. Otherwise, I find myself piling stuff up or putting it on the floor. I like having enough outlets and area to charge my laptop before hitting the road again when heading home.
Having the flexibility to work on the go makes it easier to travel. The Hilton Hill Country offered high-speed wifi at no additional cost.
I loved the bathroom. There was plenty of space to put our essentials when traveling with a large family. Everything was very clean and bright.
We highly recommend staying at the Hilton Hill Country. It truly is the best hotel near Sea World San Antonio! Actually, the hotel itself makes for a nice getaway even if you never plan to leave for the weekend. Near the pool is a bar that broadcasts sports and offers food and drinks for an additional cost. We found it reasonably priced and had delicious nachos.
